    He noted that the supply of the complex "Peresvet" was provided by the arms program for the period up to 2020. "Previously, the expected supply of this year the first two sets, but due to the prolongation of state tests, delivery may be no earlier than 2016," - said the source.

    As the Voronezh plant complete the MoD's An-148 orders, will those be the last Antonov designed aircraft that will be procured by Russia?

    China, Russia agree on joint helicopter project details — deputy PM

    Russian aviation engine building industry is able to create an engine that can be used in a Russian-Chinese helicopter

    HANGZHOU (China), April 28. /TASS/. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow in May this year may result in the final agreement on all issues and the signing of documents on the creation of a joint Russian-Chinese helicopter, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday. He attended a meeting of the bilateral Commission for the preparation of regular meetings of the government heads. The Chinese delegation is headed by Vice Premier of the State Council Wang Yang.

    "The helicopter project is in a high degree of readiness. We have informed the Chinese side that Russian aviation engine building industry today is in the capacity to create an engine that can be used in a Russian-Chinese helicopter. Yesterday evening [Monday] the sides coordinated the final aspects associated with this major project," said the deputy prime minister.

    According to Rogozin, the project has prospects oin external markets, as well as in Russia. "This project has got the Chinese side which acts in it as the main investor very interested. We consider this project more a commercial one, because we have our own helicopter Mi-26. However, this project is already taking shape. The helicopter may be so interesting that it might be in demand also in Russia. Accordingly, we hope that in May we will be able to adjust everything and sign the necessary documents," he added.

    As the Voronezh plant complete the MoD's An-148 orders, will those be the last Antonov designed aircraft that will be procured by Russia?

    I would expect so... the An-70 is dead for Russia, while the An-72, An-26/32, An-22 are all planned to be replaced in the future... they might upgrade a few AN-124s and might even build some new ones, but the family of new transport aircraft they are funding development of includes an 80, a 120-150, and a 250 ton payload class aircraft which clearly will replace the An-22 and An-70 (80), the An-124(120-150), and An-225 (250) respectively.

    the An-22 is useful, the An124 has been very useful and an An-225 will be more and more useful as the Russian space agency starts working with bigger and bigger rockets.

    Odds are they might only make 3-5 250 ton payload class aircraft though india and china might want some too... there would certainly be a world market for maybe 10-15 such aircraft.

    the 120-150 ton payload aircraft would be very useful for a variety of new roles with their new mobile armour units so they might plan for 80+ aircraft in this class for domestic use only... with world wide demand pretty high too as it is a useful weight capacity.

    the 80 ton payload aircraft would be even more popular as a C-17 alternative without the horrendous cost and will likely be bought by the VDV as an An-70 replacement as well as the Russian air force.

    In addition to those three related designs, there will be the Il-476 in the 60 ton payload class and a future possible replacement, the MTA developed with India as a replacement for the An-12, and the Il-114 and Il-112 or just two variants of the Il-112 to replace the An-26 and An-32... and finally the Ryachok to replace the venerable An-2.

    A jet powered Il-112 or Il-114 would replace the An-72 in the role of 6 ton payload high speed jet if the MTA is deemed too big, but I think something could be worked out.

    In Russia in 2016 will begin to develop a commercial version of the high-speed helicopter

    Studies have shown that a helicopter at high speed - 500 km / h - it will be very expensive

    "Since 2016 a promising high-speed helicopter program is divided into two phases. The first phase will continue to develop high-speed helicopter for commercial operators", - he said.

    According Shibitov, studies have shown that a helicopter at high speed - 500 km / h - it will be very expensive. For civilian users such speed was less important than the cost. "Therefore, from 2016 to continue creating long-term average of the helicopter at about 360 km / h for commercial applications that will incorporate what we have gained on the program at the moment," - said the representative of "Russian Helicopters".

    "As for the military to continue the implementation of research work to further improve the speed - 460 km / h and above," - said Shibitov.

    He said that for the first phase of the helicopter "Klimov" is working to modernize the VK-2500 engine. "The question is not necessary for the engines as a problem. We are fully equipped with the engine for the first stage", - said the representative of "Russian Helicopters".

    Russia's Armed Forces Set to Create Unified Flight Safety System

    Russia's Ministry of Defense is developing hardware and software for the unification of information and analytical flight safety systems for the air force.

    A demo version of the system is expected to be unveiled at a joint training meeting involving high ranking officials from the flight safety services. The meeting will take place on May 19-21.

    "After testing and debugging, the unified flight safety system will be introduced on all air force units of Russia's Armed Forces. Other entities of the state aviation will be incorporated into the system," said Major-General Alexander Berzan, the chief of Aviation Safety in the Russian Armed Forces.

    The unified system is based on a series of information systems designed to gather, store, visualize, analyze and simulate flight safety data, Russia's Ministry of Defense noted.

    "Functionally the system comprises command facilities of the Ministry's air force units. In the long term it could include cooperating federal agencies and other interested parties," Russia's Ministry of Defense added.
